Description

Dialogue with Dr. Polina Gedova & Dr. Michael Press

 

Lucy McKenzie, born in Glasgow in 1977, uses the materials of painting, design, installation and writing in her work. She takes objects and motifs from the history of architecture and design, from literature, music and film, as well as from fashion, politics and sport, and alters these source materials using the techniques of 19th-century decorative painting, creating surprising new constellations. How does the artist change our view of the tradition and history of painting? And how do these historical styles relate to our present? Museum Brandhorst is showing the first comprehensive retrospective in Germany.

 

 

3:30 PM: Musical intonation in St. Markus (Gabelsbergerstr. 6)

4:00 PM: Dialogue in Museum Brandhorst
